A new middle-grade novel about sisters, secrets, and everyday magic — all set in the enchanting streets of London!

When Phoebe finds a beautiful antique at a flea market, she’s not sure whether it’s as valuable as it looks. But inside she discovers something truly amazing — a letter from WWII, from a young girl to her sister, who has been evacuated from London. The letter includes a “spell” for bringing people closer together, a list of clues leading all through the city. Each stop along the way adds up to magic.

Phoebe is stunned by the discovery. Not only is it an amazing piece of history, the letter is exactly what she needs — she is also separated from her sister, though not by distance. Alice will be leaving for university soon, and in the meantime, she seems to want nothing to do with Phoebe. They used to be so close! But now that Phoebe has this magical list — maybe she can try the spell herself, and make everything go back to the way it was!

Raves & reviews:

Praise for My Secret Guide to Paris

“This love letter to the City of Light will have readers believing that everything’s better in Paris. Schroeder (the Charmed Life series) lets the city’s romance shine in a thoughtful story, laced with mystery and French vocabulary, about losing family and gaining individuality in a place where curiosity can bloom.” —Publishers Weekly

“Nora’s hopeful, openhearted character is beautifully depicted.” —Kirkus Reviews
